Boston’s Best BBQ: 5 Places To Get Your Barbecue Fix In The City

Boston’s Best BBQ: 5 Places To Get Your Barbecue Fix In The City

From brisket to wings, Boston has tons of options for BBQ at its best. Here are the top 5 places in and around Beantown to hit up when you’re craving Southern-style barbecue.

Sweet Cheeks

Owned by Top Chef finalist Tiffani Faison, Sweet Cheeks is your one-stop shop for barbecue bliss. Known for its pork belly, backyard beer garden, and homemade biscuits, Sweet Cheeks should be the first place you try when you’re in the mood for soul food.

Blue Ribbon BBQ

You might recognize Blue Ribbon BBQ from Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, but that’s not the only reason you should go: their pit-smoked brisket and jerk chicken are worth the trip.

The Smoke Shop

Chef Andy Husbands, who has over two decades of experience under his belt, serves up slow-cooked barbecue staples like pulled pork and wings at The Smoke Shop in Cambridge.

M&M Ribs

M&M Ribs, one of Boston’s many food trucks, serves up homemade comfort food like beef brisket and racks of ribs on the go. Make sure you try the macaroni and cheese!

Shed’s Smoked BBQ

Shed’s Smoked BBQ specializes in Texas-style barbecue with a menu featuring meats smoked for up to 18 hours. Stick to traditional sandwiches or experiment with espresso barbecue sauce and pickled jalapeños.
